Product Description

“The Forza Runner is by far one of the best running shoes I own. They’re not only functional but trendy as well” – James W.

Road running is now even lighter. We took our best-selling road runner, the HFS, reduced the weight, and added a sock-like, breathable, knit mesh upper that feels one with your foot. Of course we know that when you’re not running you’ll love showing off the sleek style.

The Forza Runner may feel narrow, but it will break in and stretch out. So if you think you have a REALLY wide foot, the Forza Runner may not work for you.

FEEL CONNECTED TO YOUR WORLD WHEN YOU RUN IN THE FORZA RUNNER

READY FOR ACTION

When Italians use the term “Forza” they mean “You have the strength to do this!” The Forza Runner gives you the strength to take on your favorite road run and so much more. The knit mesh upper makes this shoe breathable and lightweight, giving it a sock-like feel. At just 7.5oz (for each Men’s size 9), the Forza Runner is so light you won’t even know you have them on.

JUST THE WAY YOU LIKE IT

Protection? Or barefoot feel? You can have whichever you want with the removable 3.5mm insole. Leave it in for extra protection, or take it out for optimal ground feel.  Enjoy road-gripping traction with the tire-inspired tread design. Like any other shoe we make, our FeelTrue® rubber soles are backed with our 5,000 mile sole warranty.

WE MAKE RUNNING SHOES SO COMFORTABLE, YOU’LL FORGET THEY’RE EVEN ON.

If your feet don’t feel as good at the end of the day as they did in the beginning, you haven’t tried the Forza Runner.
 
Life-changing comfort and superior performance come from letting your feet do what’s natural – bend, move, flex and feel.
 
All Xero Shoes feature a wider, foot-shaped toe box that lets your toes spread and relax, a non-elevated “zero drop” heel for proper posture, low-to-the-ground design for better balance and agility, and a flexible sole that gives you the combination of grip, protection, and ground-feel your brain wants to help you Live Life Feet First.

Caring for your Xero Shoes

To clean your Xero Shoes, hand wash with warm water, mild soap and allow them to air dry. We do not recommend putting them in the washing machine or dryer.

We do! We’ve sold Xero Shoes to people in more than 85 countries around the world.
We use the US Postal service to send our shipments. The cost to ship will depend on the weight of the package and the delivery speed you select; several options will be provided at checkout.

All domestic shipments come with tracking. Limited tracking is available for some first class international shipments depending on the country, and full tracking is available with all Priority Express and Express International shipments.

Though almost all of our international orders arrive without incident, we strongly advise you to select Priority Express International or Express International if you live in a country with a less reliable postal service, including (but not limited to) India, Brazil, Mexico, South Africa, and Indonesia. We cannot guarantee delivery of packages shipped using First Class International.

International delivery can take anywhere from 3 days to 8 weeks depending on how long your order spends in customs at the border.

Please note that some countries do require the payment of import duties for international shipments above a certain value. We advise you to know the import regulations of your country and understand that you will be responsible for payment of any duties and fees imposed by your government at the border.

All packages will be marked as merchandise; as a commercial shipper, we are not able to mark a package as a gift (if you’re giving Xero Shoes as a gift, that’s not the same as us sending a gift).
Also, check our Stores page. There may be a Xero Shoes dealer closer to you.

After you purchase a gift certificate, you’ll be able to enter an email address for the recipient.

You could email it to yourself and forward it at a later time if you like.

You can also take the Gift Certificate code and send it to the recipient.

Please go to Xero Shoes Return Policy page to learn about our 45-day return policy.

While I've liked other xero shoes in the past, I don't quite like how these fit over the top of my foot. the way the laces tighten cuts off circulation, instead of locking the foot in place.

Love them. My first barefoot shoe.

I’ve trained (mostly cross-training) with zero-drop sneakers for several years and would never go back to “regular” sneakers. But I’ve never tried a true minimalist/barefoot shoe. These are great and although they will take some getting used to, I love them so far. I probably will try a slightly thicker insole as my feet get accustomed to them, but I’m thrilled so far. As many of the reviews say, they run a half size small, so size up one half size.

Why "size up"?

fine, but I wonder why you can't get the manufacturer to correctly size them, rather than have to ask all of us customers to try the next size up. I did try that a couple of years ago, and the shoes were too big. This time I didn't "size up" and had no problem.

So Happy!

Absolutely love these shoes! They are light, super comfortable and stylish. I initially sized up one shoe size, but my toenail (which I keep short) was right at the seam. Very easy return and upped an additional 1/2 size. Could not be happier.
